Brian Sarkis founded Franklin Nova after spending over a decade in the valuation practice of a Big 4 accounting firm. Throughout his nearly twenty year valuation career, Brian has performed valuation engagements for some of the largest companies in the world. The wisdom he gained from his work for these clients prepared him to launch Franklin Nova in 2012, where he realized his vision of being able to meet the needs of his clients with the hands-on personalization they deserve. Brian is a proud West Virginia Mountaineer (BS – Civil Engineering) and graduate of the University of Pittsburgh Katz Graduate School of Business (MBA) and holds the Chartered Financial Analyst designation from the CFA Institute.
Brian resides in Pittsburgh with his lovely wife Susan and their four children: Alex, Adam, Ike, and Olivia.
